Roosevelt hnve appealed to the New York slate tax commission to rule that the president died a soldier, it was learned reliablv today. Through Basil O'Connor, law partner of the late president, the estate contends that the president's role as Commander-in-chief of the armed forces entitles the heris to a substantial state and federal income tax exemptions.

Medium Sixe Hollywood KEEP YOUR HUSBAND AN BRIDEGROOM By JACK O'BRIAN New York — Lee Shubert, the 70- year-old thealrical producer and operator of most of Broadway's legitimate theaters, once told me it , was near-impossible to be both a j producer and theater-owner at thc ;same time. . . He said it takes all thc time a person normally can , ; expend to be successful at cither one. At the same time, Mr. Lee, as everyone on 'Broadway calls this venerable thealrican, had several shows going along nicely un|der his producing auspices, but jsaid il was a strain which very |nearly was not worth Ihe money! ; and incidental bother. | ! Quite a few producers do not see I :eye to eye.with Mr Lee's thoughts! ; on the subject, however, and seem i able to combine their real estate' proclivitis successfully with their . producing interests. . . Gilbert Mil: ie--. for instance, took over the Henry Miller theater after his fath- .cr's death and has managed to combine theater ownership and producing right nicely . . .Leland Hayward and Howard Cullman recently bought the Hammerstein Theater, for the last several years used by a radio network, and Hayward expects no trouble in combining not only producing and theater operation, but the direction of his VPI-V sturdily established talenl agenty as well. Barney Khuvans, also -a pro- ''iirer. operates the Biltmore Thea- ted and dies both very well. Billy Hose owns the Ziegfield Theater, where "Show Boat" is running along as a fabulous hit . . .And Mike Torld. who likes to meet or beat Billy Rose's theatrical accomplishments recently took over the i olumbus Circle Theater, thereby t managing to keep up with the Roses very nicely.

By JAMES THRASHER Family Trouble -J) An unhappy occurance in London the other day brought thc happy assurance that thc world is really becoming a family of nations. For on Ihis occasion Ihe world was allowed lo listen in on a family quarrel. And while family quarrels are never pleasant affairs, we ordinary people can't be blamed if we confess to a rather pleasant feeling of excitement at being assigned the role of spectators. The quarrel was between Mr. nevin of Great Britain and Mr. JVishlnsky of thc Soviet Union. On oehalf ol their respective countries, they said some hard things about one another at a meeting of the UNO Security Council. Mr. V. said thc presence of British troops in Greece was endangering world peace. Mr. B. answered that the real threat to world peace was the incessant Communist sniping at the British Commonwealth. There undoubtedly have been quarrels like this one before. But tney have been diplomatic, not -family, quarrels. They have been VJ\c\d behind closed do'ors because il was fell that, while their outcome might seriously affect the lives of millions, their cause and solution were strictly thc business of a small group of lop government officials. So the officials fought in private. They might look grim when they emerged from behind the closed doors, but the children of thc family could only guess at what their diplomatic papas and mamas had been saying. Now, perhaps, things arc going to be different. There isn't much •'cause for cheering in thc sel-lo between Mr. Vlshinsky. and Mr. Bcvin. - This" is particularly true since-their quarrel has been in the family for a couple of generations. 11 is, of course, Ihe old one aboul who gets lo control the Mediterranean. Recent nagging hasn't helped the participants' tempers. But a good deal of fussing over the custody of the children (Greek, Iranian and Javanese) is dramatics and camouflage. Nevertheless, it seems bellcr lo i^fiave Ihe quarreling done with the doors open. Thc antagonists arc stubborn and strong-willed, but with an audience present they may be a lilllc careful aboul appearing loo selfish and shrewish. They probably will be more conscious of Iry- ing to win sympathy for their side of the argument. Maybe they will even let one of the onlookers get Continued on Page Two Hope Star WEATHER FORECAST Arkansas: Fair this afternoon and tonight; not quftc so cold in west and central portions tonight, Saurday fair and warmer, 47TH YEAR: VOL. 47—NO. 105 Star ol Hone IBVy Hies;.

If) —(/I')— An earthquake, so intense it caused many persons to believe an atom bomb plant had exploded, shook the area from northern Oregon to Canada lasl nighl. H caused some property damage. In Seattle frightened people rushed from buildings. Only a few minor injuries were reported as ground tremors were fell over a 120,000 square mile area at 7:111:30 p. m.. Pacific standard time. Felt for about a minute in downtown Seattle, thc quake continued to record on the Universiy of Washington seismograph for 20 minutes. Geology Professor G. 13, Good- spccc said the needle jumped from its drum and he termed it the worst quake ever recorded here although of "modrate intensity." Many persons called newspaper offices to inquire "did the Hanford atom bomb plant explode?" A packing plant wall, two stories high and 170 feet long, crumpled and crushed an unoccupied shop. A 150,000 gallon water tank atop a flouring mill also fell and sent water rushing down stair wells. Thirteen-year-old Laverne Lee was perched on ii shed at his home north of Seattle setting up a radio antenna when thc tremblor shook liim until he became so dizzy he tumbled off and landed on top of a horse. "He started to run with me on him," thc boy recounted. H. W. Locke, a suburban justice of the peace was officiating at a wedding when thc quake started. "The bride grew pale and tears started to roll down her cheeks as thc building shook," said justice Locke. "I said 'keep calm, keep calm, there is nothing to worry about.' We finished the ceremony." Sheriff's Deputy Walter Calla- Administration Bill for 75c Minimum Wage to Face Battle on Floor of Senate By JAMES E. ROPER Washington, Feb. 15 — (UP) — An administration-backed bill to increase minimum wages to an eventual 75 cents an hour was heading today toward a battle on me Senate floor, Many southern Democrats, victorious in their recent filibuster against anti-discrimination legislation, svcrc cool or downright hostile to the measure aproved by the Senate Labor Commitlcc. Committee Chairman James E. Murray, D., Mont., estimated that the bill would bring pay increases for (i,000,000 workers. About half of Ihese would be brought under wage regulations for the first time. This would be accomplished by reducing thc exemptions from the present law which calls for minimum pay of 40 cents an hour in all enterprises engaged in interstate commerce. The new bill proposes a OS-cent minimum wage for two years. Then thc minimum would jump to 70 cents for two years, and after that it would be 75 cents. Affected employes working more than '10 hours weekly would have to be paid lime and a half for Ihe extra hours. A last-minute committee amendment would make the law aply to retail chains that have as many land hour regulations would be cx- as four stores and do a lolal an- tended to weekly or semi-weekly nual business of $500,000. The newspapers with a circulation of amendment was proposed by Sen. less than 3,000, provided thc major Course of State Cana! Debated ! han, a King country jailer, said there was no panic" in the jail on the lOlh floor of Ihe county-city building, but "in thc women's ward the girls were gathered al the door repealing Ihe Lord's Prayer." The surface of Seattle's Lake Union "bubbled and boiled," immediately after Ihe Ircmblor. Persons living aboard small crafl in Ihe lake said Ihe cffecl was as though a heavy object had slammed against the hulls. Professor Goodspced said he believed he quake centered near Olympic, the stale capital. There, j a cornice 75 feet long dropped from Uho six-story roof of thc Hotel Olympian with a resounding crash. Cracks appeared in at least one building of thc stale group. Reports of thc quake came from Salem, Ore., on Ihe south, to Vancouver, B. C., on thc north. It was felt as far inland as Spokane, in licved the quake centered, near u Kentucky First to Make FDR Birthday a Legal Holiday Franforl, Ky., Feb. 15 — (UPi —Kentucky Thursday became the first stale to make a legal holiday of Jan. 30, birthday of the late President Roosevelt. The state Senate overrode Gov. Simeon Willis' veto of the birthday measure by a 20 to 1C vote. Sen. Ralph Crcal, D., Hodgenville, commented lhal lime we have a chance lo be "Kentucky often ranks lowest in many things, but here's one time we have a chance to be first in the nation." Fine Bluff, Feb. 15 —i./l'i— Just what course the proposed navigable channel of the Arkansas river will take remained a mystery today following an all-day U. S. engineers hearing yesterday. .Three routes were discussed. '(B Citizens from thc Grand Prairie 'rice growing region urged construction of a canal which would link the Arkansas and While rivers and pass through thc rice fields, while other groups testified that the proposed channel would benefit more people if routed through Pine Bluff. Former Mayor Harlcy Slump, of Stuttgart, asserted that Ihe future of Grand Prairie depends on water being brought into Ihe rice fields. Channel routes under considera- _tion by the engineers include: r A cut-off near the mouth of the Arkansas to thc Mississipi river which would carry traffic past Pine Bluff. A canal connecting the While and Arkansas rivers at Clarendon and at a point near Little Rock, thus providing surface water for irrigation of the rice fields. A modification of thc latter route which would connect the White and the Mississipi a considerable distance upstream from the mouth of the White. . •_> Testifying in favor of thc Grand I ™Prairie wouldn't be impoverished . if ttic canal were not build along * the route, but they do need more water." A citizen's resolution favoring v the route also was read at the hearing. Attorney Arthur F. Triplet of Pine Bluff, testified that three times as many persons would be benefited if thc proposed channel were routed through Pine Bluff. He contended this route would insure bctcr flood control and bank ^stabilization than the Grand Prai- - j-ic route. ——— (J — WRAP IT UP Long Beach, Calif., Feb. 15 — i/l'i— Nadinc Ramsey, like all women, finds it hard to resist a bargain, so she came home from a shopping trip to Kingman, Ariz., with a P-3H fighter plane.

"This is going to stir up a lot of, er, talk, al least," ^warned Ihe rich-voiced Johnson. "The Soulh will almost rise up in arms against this." Murray said the wage bill probably would be ready for Senalc consideration early next week. He expects lo be out of town until about March 4, however, and Senate leaders may delay debate until Murray can be on hand to defend the bill which is strongly backed by President Truman. The committee voted lo make thc minimum wage bill apply no', only to businesses engaged in interstate commerce but also those "affecting" inter-slate commerce. This would include any business competing with a firm which is in inter-stale commerce. The bill would continue lo exempt agricultural workers from minimum wage regulations. II also would exempt messenger boys. Persons who give the firsl processing to sea foods or agricultural products also would be exempted for 14 weeks a year to permit Ihem lo work longer hours during harvest season without burdening their employers with heavy ovrtime payments.

He predicted thc bill would be ameded "drastically" when it reaches thc Senate floor. He will offer an amendment to make thc top minimum 05 cents instead of 75. Sen. Olin D. Johnson, D., S. C., favors higher pay for mill workers but said extending thc scope of the bill to include new typos of work- part of the circulation is within the county where it is printed a published. The bill would direct the wage- hour administrator to set up industry committees "as soon as practicable" to recommend the highest minimum wage that any particular industry can pay without curtailing employment "substantially." These wages would have to be between 65 and 75 cents an hour. The administrator, if he agrees with the findings, could order the minimum wage for the ers "jeopardizes the whole bill."

The army, admitting defeat in its efforts to obtain fully fit men, asked Selective Service to funnel 71).000 physical rejects into uniform by the end of April. These will be in addition to the 50.000 men a month the army has requested from the draft system to meet its discharge program and still retain a strength of 1,500,000 men on June 30. Thc 4-F's for thc most part will be taken from thc ranks of non- fathers between Ihe ages of 18 and 25 who previously qualified for limited service but were not taken because of overflowing quotas. The State Police Say: Statistics show thai sixty per cent of all traffic deaths occur 'after dark. The safe driver reduces speed afler sundown. J he draftees also include some with physical disabilities at present deferred for agriculture and occupational reasons. The army admilcd the new order would lower efficiency and result in a larger percentage of disability discharges bul il said there was no alternative. It was pointed out that the army must have 250.000 drafees during first five months of the year. Ihe \ . Under the revised standards, the army will accept men with certain deficiencies.

Thc navy said 153,500 enlisted personnel and 13.800 officers would be eligible for discharge' under new point scores which will be effective April 15 and May 2. Point scores for male commissioned and warrant officers will be cut one point to 36 on April 15 and to 35 on May 2.

Lebanon Accuses Anglo-French By JOHN A. PARR1S London, Feb. 15 — I/I 1 )— Russia threw her support to the Levant states in the United Nations Security Council today, declaring their Atom Bomb in infancy - Seversky By EULALIE MCDOWELL Washington, Feb. 15 —(UP) — Maj. Alexander P. Seversky, aviation authority and author, who has been conducting a campaign to calm atomic bomb "hysteria," contended today thai thc weapon is still in Ihe "fire-cracker" stage. Seversky lold Ihe Senae's special aomic commitee he viewed the bomb as being where aviation was when thc Wright Brothers made Ihe famous Kily Hawk flight. But no amount of proving and close examination by commitee members could get seversky to change his view thai incendiary bombs from 200 super-bombers could have done as much damage in Japan as thc atomic bombs. He further estimated that if the same types of bombs used on the Iwo Japanese cilics are used in Ihe planned atomic bomb ship tesls in May and July, "I don'l think much material damage will be done." An atomic bomb scoring a direct hit on a battleship, he said, would doubtless destroy it But, on Ihe other hand, a direct hit from other lypcs of bombs would likewise dc- slroy Ihe battleship, he said. Seversky said thai afler reading "exaggerated" reports of atomic bomb damage lo Ihe Japanese cilies, he arrived there and found I many buildings still standing and ! large areas undamaged . | Sen. Thomas C. Hart, R., Conn., •.suggested thai Seversky was "al! templing lo correct overstalcmens i on he bomb by making some of lyour own." Higher Wage Policy Points to Steel Strike Settlement Stripping By STERLING F. GREEN Washinglon, Feb. 15 —(/Pj— Official Washinglon confidenlly expected a steel strike settlement today as a swift follow-up to President Truman's higher wage-price line and his choice of Chester Bowles to hold it.

The American action was understood /to have been taken after Chiang expressed concern to the United States over the continued presence of the Red Army in Manchuria. The Russians originally were scheduled to leave the territory last December, but their departure has been postponed several times and no definite date has yet been fixed. American concern apparenlly centered on the reported industrial looting by Russian troops in Manchuria, particularly since the United Stales reparations committee headed by Edwin W. Pauley only recently was refused permission to enler the Russian-held territory, v It was pointed out that an Allied reparaipns committee already is funcioning in Germany on disposition of German industrial equipment, whearas the United States has no voice in the disposal of Manchurian industries, although it was the principal foe of Japan throughoul Ihe war, High Chinese officials puvately have conflimed press^eports that the -Russians were r stn^pmg "cvey- thing of value fom Manchuia, but they have refrained from making the charge officially, apparently in hope that the situation will work itself out. These officials asserted that Russia is following an "opportunistic" policy in Manchuria and reaching for every possible advantage. They indicated, however, that China will not appeal to the United Nations organization but will attempt to work out a solution with the aid of he Unied Staes .Meanwhile, it was learned that Sino-Russian conversations are in progress in Chungking and Changchun on the queslion of further economic concessions for the Soviets in Manchuria. The Catholic newspaper social welfare said Russia has made four new demands on China for additional Manchurian concession, over and above the terms of the Sino-Russian treaty. The newspaper listed Ihe demands as: 1. Complete Chinese-Russian economic cooperation.

Stetlmius, JJr., added, however, that if this decision were approved it should be made clear that th council has "continuing concrn in th mailer and would receive progress reports on the negotiations." "Ihe United Stales government policy," he said, "is to encourage the withdrawal of foreign troops from all Allied territory." Lebanon accused Britain and I-ranee of a "grave attack on the sovereignly" of thc Levatine states and demanded "immediate anu simultaneous evacuation" of foreign troops. Foreign Minister llamid Bey Krangie of Lebanon opened the debate on Syrian-Lebanese charges against Britain and France, an Ls.su which forced the security council to remain in London as delegates to the first general assembly departed for home.

Other people in the United States used lo ask me such silly questions as whether it rained in India and whether there were any Indians in India," sighed Miss Rama Rau, who thinks India needs "another Pearl Buck" to make Americans as interested in India as she feels they are in China This 23-year-old girl has made a good slarl herself in lelling India's story with a best seller book, "Home in India," which told of her conflicts in readjusting herself lo her native country after ten years in England She wrote the book after being graduated from Wellesley College during a four year stay in the Uniled Slates lo sludy "the mechanics of your democracy" Since returning to India last fall, she has lived with her parents and police dog, Pasha Kemal, in a spacious western style house in p fashionable quarter of Bombay Her father, Sir Senegal Ram Rau, is a diplomat in the India civil service Lady Rama Rau is active in Indianpolitics and social welfare movements. iu „ ,„„ vv .. vulci Her name means "spring."

Snowed under with propositions thai he write and speak for hire, Ickes is taking his time about announcing future plans. Republicans are peddling the story that Ickes plans to tackle Democratic big wigs on "other matters" afler the Pauley dispute is out of the way. Ickes is likely to do just that. Rep. Leslie C. Arends, House Republican whip, summed up GOP sentiment when he said: 'It looks like Ickes did such a complete job there's nothing left to be said. It all is water on our wheel." Other Republicans expect Ickes to begin thumping the drums in a presidential campaign in behalf of Secretary of Commerce Henry A. Wallace.
